It was celebration time on the set of Ashutosh Gowariker's period drama 'Mohejo Daro'. Actor Manish Chaudhari (who was also seen in Gowariker's TV show 'Everest') celebrated his birthday with the unit in Bhuj where they are currently shooting.

Manish says, "During lunch, the team surprised me with a birthday cake. On a film set, the team becomes family, so this year I got to spend my birthday with my 'Mohenjo Daro' family in beautiful Bhuj."

Unit hands smeared cake on his face while making merry. Among those spotted were Ashutosh Gowaritkar with wife Sunita, Nitish Bharadwaj, Kishore Shahane and newcomer Pooja Hegde who stars opposite the film's lead Hrithik Roshan.

Manish adds, "Bhuj has been very kind to us and working with Ashutosh is a very special experience."

Gowariker had shot for his 2001 film 'Lagaan' in Bhuj as well.
